Jo Rocca | 17 comments Just want to suggest a few authors/books in light of #blacklivesmatter

Sarah Ahmed "Living a Feminist Life"-- addresses how feminism is not just a western movement but also had origins and movements in the east.

Brittney Cooper "Eloquent Rage"-- perspectives on Women's March and #blacklivesmatter as part of historically raced feminism.

Any other suggestions?

Florian (laughingflow) | 220 comments Thanks for those suggestions. Actually we already read Eloquent Rage in 2018 😉

Jo Rocca | 17 comments It might be worth revisiting though with current political climate in the US.

Kate (katetakate) | 96 comments Thanks Jo for highlighting those titles, I have read Eloquent Rage (planning re-read it soon - found she made a lot of pertinent points) and will look up the other title.

I shared a list of race + feminism authors a couple of weeks ago on a thread here - I can’t recall which thread it was.

I am currently reading Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women That a Movement Forgot (which is insightful).

I just finished Dear Martin which is also a powerful read.

A few feminism + race relations books I have read and reccomend, in addition to your reccomendations:

When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir

The Bluest Eye

Brit(ish): On Race, Identity and Belonging

Thick: And Other Essays

Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race (Our Shared Shelf book pick)

The Hate U Give (Our Shared Shelf book pick) and On the Come Up

And there’s a few others I plan to read soon.
